And so begins a love affair...

I found Tumblr.

Yep yet another social media account to distract me from everyday life. Like twitter it took me a while to really get it (and I still don't always fully understand it), but I discovered some wonderful FA and Fatposi blogs which frankly MAKE MY DAY!

I cannot tell you how awesome it is to have an arsenal of fat and fabulous people on my iPhone wherever I go. When I'm feeling low I can go and have a scroll through Chubby Bunnies and it just lights up my day. And the reason? Because filling your head with such a wonderful array of body diversity really starts to strip away this notion of one size fits all beauty. That's not to say of course I'd exclude thinner and fit bodies from my idea of beauty, but I can see that kind of beauty anywhere and EVERYWHERE I go. Its shoved down our throats whether we like it or not.

Of course some of my faves from the Fatosphere float around tumblr too. Lately I've been crushing on Courtney from the Glitter Thread just love her style and look!

Am I incredibly slow to catch on to Tumblr? How many of you guys use it?

I've leave you with a few of my recent faves:

October Round Up

Hi guys! Slow on the blogging front, as I'm having trouble actually photographic my outfits. Need to sort myself out!

Any way I did get a few snaps of some of the stuff I've been wearing this month. I had a mini spree on ebay, and got two pairs of shorts (bad timing I know, now the weather is turning, but I thought they'd be cute with thick tights.

The first are a pair of spotty New Look culottes in an 18. I thought I'd be brave and wear them with a black top tucked in so they were as visible as possible. 

Also wearing a simple black cardi, claret tights and my sneaker style heel wedges.

Here's a close up shot (on a different day) they are furry lined and can be worn rolled down too - only with my little shorts and red tights, I kinda felt like something from the movie Elf, so I left them up for the pictures. They were from peacocks last winter and are the only big heels I can wear these days 4inch but because they're wedge they're dead comfy.

The second pair of shorts I got where some denim ones. I wore this outfit to go bowling in and felt super cute. I'm wearing the same claret tights in this pic, with an off the shoulder top.
 Other things I've been up to? 
Eating lots of delicious muscles.

Finding time for the odd manicure

Helping the hubster test his cooking skills for college.

Not bothering with makeup most days

Wearing a flamboyant hat to work for Halloween

Going all out Halloween for skating practice (only to over heat so badly I had to throw up - don't exercise in hot costumes kids!)

And being scared by this huge beast! (car keys for scale)

How was your October? Oh god..its nearly Christmas!
